  • This location has 3-4 view points side by side. The view of the elephant's head is interesting. May be your cab driver can guide you some information and stories. Beware of monkeys. Dam view is very good.
  • Greenery and natural beauty of the point is enchanting. The mountain is carved in to the shape of an elephant head and covered in by creepers adding to greenery. lot of plants ,good site for photography . The area is very clean and we as tourists there must ensure that the same stays litter free
  • Beautiful place. There are small food joints on the point. Best place to visit in early morning and during sunset. In the noon it gets hot.
  • The place is good to visit, the view is great and amazing. You could see so many far mountains. Sometimes have to walk a bit because of too much traffic and crowd. Beware of monkey's.
  • We were trying to recognise the face or head of the elephant at that point, but there was no structure like that. Recommend that visit the Arthur Point instead of this, that will gonna be a much better option.
